TI-TECHNOLOGY POWS ALIGNED TO THE COMMON CORE

http://mathforum.org/tpow/ti.pow.html

We've re-visited Problems of the Week (PoWs) that take
advantage of the TI-Nspire, and developed teacher packets
aligning each of our TI-PoWs to the Common Core State
Standards (CCSS).

Each TI-PoW now comes with PDFs that detail

- Standards
- The Strategy
- TI-Nspire
- Key Screen Shots
- Possible Responses

Students are invited to use the link "Submit your answer" and
then "self-mentor" using specially designed hints, checks, and
suggestions for extensions.

TI-PoWs come included with any PoW membership. If you haven't
already registered for free access to the TI-PoWs, visit

http://mathforum.org/tpow/about.html

PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week

"I have found lately in PoWs, that charts make doing them a lot
easier. I would suggest a struggling student to use them. At
first, we worked in a group. We got a few different answers,
but realized that they were the same triangles, but said
differently. That is the same mistake I just made."

MATH AWARENESS MONTH

http://www.mathaware.org/

This April, the theme of Mathematics Awareness Month (MAM)
will be Mathematics, Statistics, and the Data Deluge.

The official announcement of MAM 2012 states, in part: "Massive
amounts of data are collected every day, often from services we
use regularly, but never think about. Scientific data comes in
massive amounts from sensor networks, astronomical instruments,
biometric devices, and needs to be sorted out and understood.
Personal data from our Google searches, our Facebook or Twitter
activities, our credit card purchases, and our travel habits
are being mined to provide information and insight. These data
sets provide great opportunities, and pose dangers as well."

MAM is collecting its own data -- in exchange for a chance to
win a $100 iTunes gift card! Just enter five words that best
describe people who enjoy mathematics and statistics:

http://www.amstat.org/datadeluge/web/survey.cfm

Mathematics Awareness Month is sponsored each year by the Joint
Policy Board for Mathematics, a collaborative effort of the
American Mathematical Society, the American Statistical
Association, the Mathematical Association of America, and the
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Visit
mathaware.org for essays, linking icons, a sample press release
template, and more.

To download a 17.5" x 21.383" image of this year's MAM
poster, visit:

The American Statistical Association also sells the poster
for $1:

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"Beside the removal of a penalty for guessing on AP Statistics
exam multiple choice questions, what other changes have
developed over the last two years?"
